|Parked at the tyres. Just as Judy and I got to the top the heavens opened with huge rain drops.||GordonAdshead||02/08/2019|

|Aye Jimmy's tyres mention on the road to the north, very useful.up the track to east west track. Turn right to the summit at NW. Like many others, the third completion of this UA. Bonus of loads of shaggy ink caps.||vegibagger||19/10/2018|
|As per CS - lot of hill been burnt and still smelt of smoke||Mark Sims||06/09/2018|
|From North, initially along BW then uphill.
Added a few stones to the small pile at HP. Interesting views with an energy generation theme, The old pit head close by, 3 power station cooling towers to the North and lots of wind turbines to the east. UA completion for the 3rd time.||PeterD||15/08/2018|
|Thanks Aye Jimmy.||arranc||12/08/2018|
|1st of a 3 tump foray to recompleted The South Pennines to Liverpool and Nottingham Topo section. I parked up on the road opposite the bridleway to the North and after a few metres veered off to climb direct, partly using track. Grass at the top is burnt, with some parts still smouldering. The local name, ASh Hill, appears very fitting today! I located NGthacks's stone collection. Good view down to the colliery. Re-traced route back to the car (borrowed today from my mum!). Next target: Barlow Mound.||Dazingdale||05/08/2018|
|Easy win. Walked around edge of former colliery yard.||Ramblingpaul||17/06/2018|
|Easy bag on a beautiful day. A sprinkling of small stones at the summit, which I made into a mini cairn.||ngthack||27/05/2018|
|Parked in Mayfield Avenue and crossed over onto grassy Old spoil heap. Populated with house martins and skylarks, and this above the old pit head. Some good reclamation.||Campbell Singer||22/05/2018|
|As per AJ, extensive view over colliery and continuing works - landscaping?||Bramley||18/05/2018|
|From road to N of hill, very easy. Started at bridleway marked by huge old tyres. Track up hill then round to right. Summit at bend looking down onto old colliery.||Aye Jimmy||15/05/2018|
|Site has 3 summits The Main (NW) summit is at SE 65399 11652, 40m by GPS (Etrex)
There's a lower minor low-prominence NE summit at SE 6603 1176 approx, partially vegetated.
The S summit at SE 65884 11084 has a bare earth summit, methane vents suggesting former landfill, GPS (Garmin Etrex) suggests 31m P29m, with 2m col S side of railway at SE 65998 11482, with railway bridge nameplate Hugh Hill Lane possibly suggesting a name for the hill. Given some landscaping and a proper survey, this could be a Tump some day
All three Hatfield summits are easily accessed from the N, Thorne Rd, with no fences or signs. The Hatfield Main headworks are still there (despite a move in 2015 to demolish them on safety grounds http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-south-yorkshire-34785700 ) - perhaps it will become a public park in due course.||RHW||20/04/2018|
